and mitt romney both have a play list that, again, i think it is trying to give them the character or persona. mitt romney has johnny cash on his. obama has arcade fire. all these, like -- i was listening to them this morning and just sort of -- you read so much into it, what do they mean by that lyric? what are they trying to say? >> why are they choosing -- arcade fire. who exactly mentioned they must have a group in charge of social media, which would be a pretty awesome job if you're a youngster out of college, right, and tweeting on behalf of the president or mitt romney. is that who it is? >> yeah. mostly it is not the candidates posting. >> it is not? >> shocker. so there are people employed to do this. i think this came out of the 2008 campaign, you know, president obama had a lot of success reaching out particularly to young voters on text messages and social networks. you mentioned that was more twitter and facebook then and now spreading into these other networks too like tumbler or spotify. >> how successful, ultimately, as you mention that young voting bloc that is so
. president obama holes a campaign rally today at ohio state university. mitt romney holds rallies in both ohio and iowa. and i want to take another look at those two polls that everyone is talking about this morning. they seem to paint different pictures of this race. the pew research center gives mitt romney a four-point lead over president obama. 49% to 45%. that survey did include more likely voters who identify themselves as republicans. however, the latest gallup tracking poll has president obama leading mitt romney 50% to 45%. this poll does include voters who were surveyed before the presidential debate which most voters say romney won though interestingly enough, it showed movement toward obama yesterday. all right. hard to keep track of. there's a lot going on here. cnn political reporter peter hamby joins us live from washington. please, peter, make sense of this for us. >> okay. these are the first two real credible polls we've seen since the debate. the bottom line here is there's movement in both toward mitt romney. you're right. the gallup poll had about three days of sampli
voters in loudoun county like john dyer, romney and obama both still have an opening, but they need to talk specific solutions. when you see the sequester looming, what does it make you feel? frustrated? >> concerned. concerned about the trickle down effect that might happen if the budgets were cut, some of the partnering opportunities we would have with prime contractors might not move forward. >> and that would be devastating to your business? >> yes, it would. >> in the next debates, both candidates will need to present a plan to avoid blunt edges. northern virginia, a totally different political complexion. now with the sequester hanging over local small businesses, people are concerned, anxious and frustrated and looking for solutions from the candidates. >> and ahead, congress demands answers about the events that led to the terrorist attack in libya that killed four americans. who knew what and when. tonight, an exclusive interview with the sister of a navy s.e.a.l. killed that night. plus, a new role for mitt romney's wife. ann going on the attack. attack ann. but is it work

. >>> both president obama and mitt romney off the campaign trail today. instead they're in virginia and massachusetts respectively preparing for today's second presidential debate. so while they look ahead to tuesday, how about we look back to last week and thursday's entertaining vice-presidential debate. we all had our own favorite highlights but here's how the fine folks at "saturday night live" saw it. >> well, if you enjoyed thursday night's vice-presidential debate, you're certainly not alone. >> four years ago, president obama made a promise that he would bring down unemployment below 6%. >> ah, this guy. >> he said by the end of his first term he would cut the deficit in half. >> congressman ryan prepared by holding debates and biden prepared by watching red bull and yosemite cartoons. >> you think you're turfer than me because you do the px-90 workouts? there's jim strong and old man strong. you want to know my workout. >> when the amtrak breaks down at my morning commute, strip down to my tighty whiteys and i push that [ bleep ] all the way to washington. >>> during thursd
. we talked about can governor romney put pennsylvania into play. both of these states were out of reach, michigan and pennsylvania heading into the first debate. look where they are now. dead heat statistically in the state of michigan, where romney was born. his dad was governor. in pennsylvania, a close race as well with the president on top. i'm a bit skeptical. i want to see if this happens in a second and third poll but this is very important. states like this suddenly being in play heading into the final couple of weeks because if the president has to start spending time and money defending pennsylvania and defending michigan, that means less time the president is spending in florida, in ohio, in the western battlegrounds. at the moment the map is expanding, finally the romney campaign would say in its favor. >> interesting. john, thanks. >>> let's dig deeper. let's look forward to round three of the debates on tuesday, where the campaign is headed. joined by patrick millsaps, former chief of staff and paul begala. the latest polls came out after last week's debate but al
with mitt romney, they're both willing to say and do anything to become president and vice president. and they're a little fast and loose with the facts. that's a lesson we've learned. we've been holding their feet to the fire over the last ten days. and we're going to continue to do that. the president included. >> the president says he was a little too polite last time. maybe he'll be less polite this time. here's another little exchange that the vice president had with paul ryan. i'm going to play some of these clips. >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that's a $3,200 benefit cut -- >> more people -- >> these are from your own actuaries. >> more people signed up for medicare advantage after the change. >> it's a plan i put together with a prominent democratic senator from oregon -- >> there's not one democrat that endorses it. not one democrat who signed the plan -- >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground, but i think we would be better served if we don't keep interrupting ea
to fix the auto industry, but mitt romney did want to fix the auto industry. >> both of the sides had views about a managed bankruptcy, but don't believe the had headline that was attributed to mitt romney. >> it ultimately worked, by the way. >> you can make a fair argument, without question. >> get some sleep tonight. for those of you who missed it and you did get your sleep last night you'll get to watch the debate because we'll replay it. the entire vice presidential debate starts at 9:00 a.m. on the pacific coast today. don't miss it. so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she?

'll be back with us. he's joining us from ohio. as we mention both mitt romney and president obama are campaigning in ohio today. and believe it or not today's big issue in the presidential race is big bird. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta reports from iowa right now where romney held a rally earlier in the day. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign is clearly feeling good, but at the same time top advisors are trying to downplay the importance of a slew of new polls showing the gop nominee now in a real horse race with president obama in a sign that all of this has gotten the president's attention. this campaign has suddenly turned into a race over small things or rather one big bird. plowing into his proposals to help american farmers, mitt romney had poultry on his mind in iowa. of the eight-foot and yellow variety as he accused the president of fouling up the nation's weak recovery. >> you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird. i actually think we need to have a president who talks about saving th
-elected. >> in fairness, both obama in romney are talking about alternative ways of doing this. eliminating the deductions that an individual can take. >> romney told me $25,000 -- >> and the president has proposed to reduce the rate at which you can item yieds it. >> but romney started out at 17,000 and then to you he start of raised the cap a little bit. >> and chuck shumer threw a ball into this. we have a trillion deficit. why are we reducing tax rates at all. let's use it to our deficit reduction rather than lowering rates at the top. >> you know this as i did. when biden kept talking about raising taxes for people making a million or more as opposed to $250,000. >> that's a chuck schumer idea as well coming from new york. >> but all this should tell us is that before people go to the voting boothss, they're not going to know the answers to these questions. everyone would like to know the answers to these questions, but you have professional groups disagreeing about the economic impact of these things. so we don't really know. >> we have more clarity on the spending side where romney has said he want
" and former romney foreign policy spokesman, rick grinell. welcome to you both. let's start with this stacey dash thing. there is a very nice, attractive, talented young black actress who decides because she has come to this conclusion i i'm -- i voted for obama before, i'm voting for romney now and all hell breaks loose. she's the subject of a vicious attack on twitter by all sorts of people. what do you make of it? >> listen, i think it's unfortunate that anybody can make up their mind and vote however they want. i think also, you do have to realize that there are people who kind of gravitate to vote in groups and they kind of think in groups. i think we sometimes just look at the racial group but there are people who vote in gender lines, they look at whether or not there's a war on women and whether or not you should be a woman voting for the gop, for instance. a lot of people make that argument. there's sexual orientation, there's kind of ethnic -- >> right. but in this particular case -- >> all i'm saying is should she have been attacked, of course not. do i believe that people kind of
are in battleground states and as you know, that's where it matters. both in terms of the public polling, but also in terms of what we've built on the ground. remember, we have several different pathways to get to 270. mitt romney doesn't. so we feel pretty good about where we are in this race. there's been some tightening as a result of mitt romney's debate performance but we think that that is temporary and can be turned around. >> in ohio, for example, president obama's leading by seven to ten points before the debate. that is now shortened to just 4%, 51-47. it's getting tight, isn't it? president obama cannot afford to have -- >> that's just one poll. >> sorry? >> right. that's in the cnn poll. but there are a lot of other polls out there. we feel good about where we are on the ground, particularly in ohio. as a result of what the president did on the auto bailout, let's remember, mitt romney opposed that. what we've done to increase opportunities for kids to get education, let's remember mitt romney wants to cut that. so at every turn, you know, the president is moving america forward, inclu
's presidential debate. both nationally and in one battleground state it shows a big swing toward mitt romney. take a look. late this afternoon, there was this latest national pew research poll. governor romney now holding a four point lead among likely voters who were surveyed october 4th through the 7th, in other words, after the debate. that is a big swing from mid-september when president obama was ahead by eight. that was this afternoon, a short time ago, a poll running in the "detroit free press" shows the president's lead shrinking to just three points in michigan. mr. obama had a ten point lead there last month. mitt romney's running mate, paul ryan, is in michigan tonight addressing a rally at oakland university in the town of rochester just outside detroit. the question tonight, if the mood of voters is changing here, could it also be a sign that it's changing in ohio as well, another key battleground state. the poll in the free press and the pew poll not the only good news for the romney forces. they got a big boost as well in gallup's tracking poll which shows a 47-47 tie among li
't have to write it down. both president obama and mitt romney have entire policy positions on immigration they laid out online. what this does for us in my industry is gives us a play to follow their promises that whoever becomes a president can be held to the promises. the cnn political ticker has breaking political news all the time, in and out, every day. we have an entire section there that's all about immigration. so when you hear a new ashert s assertion or change where a candidate stands, we will have it for you. everything right here is linked up at twitter and facebook. while we talk about that, i want you to know something on twitter. i have it #rtfacts. i'm using this to get you hard facts. the presidential debate made it so clear how desperately this is needed for falsehoods and muddled conversation that leave millions confused as to what is going on. join me at that hash tag. the more we learn about whaez candidates promise to do and b, what's actually been down, the better off we all are as voting publics. >> absolutely. thanks so much helping to keep us informed. >>> we go
today that went down saturday night, they're not talking about president obama, governor romney, or even "saturday night live." they are talking about fox news host bill o'reilly and the daily show host john stewart. both men went at it and left no subject off the table during debate they billed as the rumble in the air conditioned auditorium at george washington university in d.c. >> fox news is sort of the lupus of news. they are -- they have seen something. it is there with a -- and fox news has gone overboard. >> well, hey -- [ applause ] >> fnc is making a billion dollars a year so something is -- >> you can't make money selling -- >> if you missed it last night, you can watch it on-line at the rumble 2012.com. >>> romney's foreign policy speech. afghanistan, israel, iran. which issue will romney focus on and which one gives him more ammunition against president obama? we'll take a look. jack, you're a little boring. boring. boring. [ jack ] after lauren broke up with me, i went to the citi private pass page and decided to be...not boring. that's how i met marilyn... giada... really
and mark, great to see both of you. doug, the romney/ryan plan will reduce rates like 20%. let's forget the lool hope for a moment. see the top rate go down from 35% to 28%. that's certainly not a drop, like jfk did or romney did. can 35 to 28 spark real gdp growth? >> i think we're in a very different world and quite frankly a better world. the feature they have in common, often not appreciated, these are permanent tax reforms, and they have much bigger impacts. it makes sense. a tax cut for a day, you wouldn't do much. and it would change a lot of things, the research supports that notion, an important part of this, a tax reform, permanent change that eliminates the changes. and it reduces complexity. complexity causes people to, a, waste money with tax planning and lawyers and leads to you waste business decisions on the basis of taxes, not business fundamentals and erodes faye faith in the tax system. and the combination of personal nens and getting businesses to focus on the bottom line are very big impetus for growth. >> i understand your point. it's more than just cutting margina
position is very consistent. >> ana, you heard from both of them. romney has moved to the center, appears to have moved from the center. could it backfire both with his base and perhaps undecideds who don't think he holds sincere beliefs? and even with women, aafter hearing that comment from the des moines register and then saying something that appears to be different. could that change that? >> don, you know i haven't been mitt romney's biggest defender or biggest fan but i don't really see a great inconsistency in what he said and what he has said. he said he won't be pursuing legislation. i'm glad to hear that. frank frankly the difference between taking executive action or pursuing legislation is a big one. it takes a lot of political capital to get legislation through. i don't think you will get any sort of abortion rights or abortionless legislation through a democrat senate or very close held senate. >> can you more be more specific about why you think that it's not a flip flop? why don't you think this is a big deal? >> because i -- you know, he's saying he's not going to pursue
pew poll showing romney with a lead raises the already high stakes for both tickets on thursday night. vice president biden, paul ryan. does either have an advantage, you think, going in? >> you could say paul ryan is younger, has more passion, has more energy. you could say joe biden is more experienced, 36 years in the senate, the sitting vice president, he's been on this stage before. biden on paper has more experience at this. ryan says he's outgunned. we will see how it goes. americans pick presidents, not vice presidents. rare can you go back in history and find a game-changing vice presidential debate. you mentioned governor romney does have some debate right now. the republican base is energized right now, so this is how his campaign views this. paul ryan can continue that momentum or he can do something that chokes off that momentum. >> there was a lot of pressure in 2008 when biden was going against palin and he had to come off as not being condescending, not seeming sort of dismissive of her. it's a very different dynamic. >> yeah. he didn't want to appear patronizing at al
for the president but for mitt romney, and that's why you see them both spending so much time in the state of ohio. >> all right. dan lothian traveling with the president there on the west coast. sthoonks much. republican mitt romney is spending the weekend in florida where he's talking to crowds and trying to win their support. he spent yesterday preparing for the next debate. it's a must-win state if he wants to capture the white house, and today romney again wednesday on the offense against president obama on health care. >> if he is re-elected, he will install obama care. with it your xwrpremiums will gp an extra $2,500 above what they already are according to the congressional budget office. my plan is that i will finally get control of the excessive costs in health care by repealing and replacing obama care with real reforms. >> romney and obama will debate again just nine days from now, october 16th. you can watch the vice presidential debate right here on cnn this week. joe biden/paul ryan go at it on thursday. the coverage begins at 7:00 eastern time. >>> the rumble in the air-conditioned
hot there in greece. >>> president obama and mitt romney will both campaign in ohio today, key battleground states. two national polls show the race basically tied at this point, taken after the debate gives mitt romney a four-point lead over president obama, 49% to 45%. last month that same poll had romney trailing the president by eight points. there is good news from the president. latest gallup tracking poll has him leading romney by five points. some of that survey taken before the debate but a lot of it taken after. >>> starring big bird, produced after mitt romney declared he would cut funding for pbs during last week's debate. it is laced with sarcasm, casting the sesame street character as an evil corporate fiend. >> bernie madoff, ken lay, criminals, glutton of greed. and the evil genius who towered over them? one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird. big bird. big bird. >> it's me, big bird. >> a menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about. it's sesame street. >> i am going to stop the subsidy to pbs. >> mitt romne
with lz, it was a bit of both. there was a lot of both. president obama was way off and mitt romney was very much on his game. you know, i don't remember many debates where it's hard to think of a memorable gaffe or a memorable knockout blow, and yet there was a very visible mark of undebatable victor of this debate, which was mitt romney. he did it just because for 90 sustained minutes it was like he was debating a limp piece of spaghetti. >> it was like the chair from clint eastwood. but i want to go a little longer with this segment to talk more with these guys. this is some honest talk. let's talk about the job numbers, they couldn't have come at a better time with the president considering his performance the other night, how big of a help is this below 8% jobless rate, do you think? i'm going to start with anna to see what the republicans think about that. how big of a help? because mitt romney can no longer go, well, the unemployment rate is above 8%. >> absolutely it was a help. and it was a solid vote for president obama on friday, the day just after this disastrous debate.
boosting our competition. >> it's weird, it's bringing policy both presidential candidates disagree with. you heard mitt romney saying he wants to staple a green card to the degree. where is the holdup? where is the problem? >> i i call them juveniles battling each other rather than try to fix the problem. everyone needs we need a start-up visa to start entrepreneur companies here, that we want more scientists, more engineers, more doctors, it's good for america, but they won't give each other political victory. both sides support stem, but they won't agree on legislation for petty wrangling they're doing. it's really silly what's going on in capitol hill. >> the same stuff we've been talking about the rest of the show, they can't agree on stuff that will likely send us into a recession, they can't agree on that. so this is probably way down on the political totem pole. by the way, it's probably easiest to get rich in asia, so does this support the possibility that there are opportunities in other countries for highly skilled workers. the u.s. is not the only game for them. >> absolutely
that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimmy carter and barack obama. >> reporter: to put his vision into action, romney will have to win first, which explains why he made an impromptu stop at a nearby elementary school. at this stage of the race, the pictures matter almost as much as the policies. romney did mention the obama campaign's trump card on foreign policy, the killing of osama bin laden, but he seemed to give the credit to what he called, quote, military and intelligence professionals. romney will now shift back to the economy with campaign events coming up here in virginia and also in iowa and ohio. wolf? >> jim acosta, thank you. let's go back to gloria borger. what was mitt romney trying to accomplish with this marriage foreign policy speech today? >> well, i think he was trying to do a bunch of things. first of all, on the leadership que
romney knowing that said i would sign it. were i there. >> you can see both candidates throwing around a lot of claims about medicare. tom foreman and reality check team. have been checking facts, tom. what do you see? >> medicare is a government health care plan, mainly for people over 65, million people are counting on that. as you heard from both campaigns, each side is saying the other side's future plans are terrible. >> obama care, taks 716 billion to take care of obama care. >> seniors, have you been denied choices, lost an advantage. >> they haven't put a credible idea on the table. >> ideas are old, bad and eliminate the guarantee of medicare. >> essentially what they are saying, my opponent will destroy medicare, can that really be true. let's look at the facts and consider what's in front of us. the white house plan and the landscape they are facing. over the next ten years, the cost of medicare is going to gradually ramp up until it's about a trillion dollars a year. the white house and joe biden would like to introduce that by 10%, the orange section in here. that's the pa
's no whining in politics. one person should have challenged what romney was saying and his name is barack obama, and he did not do it. i agree with lz. it was a bit of both. it was a lot of both. president obama was way off, and mitt romney was very much on his game. you know, i don't remember many debates where it's hard to think of a memorable gaffe or a memorable knockout blow, and yet there was a very visible mark that was an undebatable victor of the debate, and it was mitt romney. he did it because for 90 sustained minutes, it was like he was a limp piece of spaghetti. >> yeah, it was like the chair. this is honest talk. let's talk about the job numbers. it could have come at a better time, and how big of a help is this below 8% jobless rate, do you think? i want to see what the republicans think about that? mitt romney can't say the unemployment rate is above 8%? >> absolutely it was a help, and on friday, just after the debate, and let me tell you, don, i am a republican, but when it comes to unemployment numbers i am an american first, i am not on the red or blue team, and i want our e
that shows a statistical tie in pennsylvania. that's based on surveys done both before and after the debate and nationally in gallup's daily tracking poll which covers october 2nd through the 8th, mitt romney now holds a two point edge. today, gallup shifted from registered to likely voters, which tends to favor republicans. that said, though, it is hard to find any evidence, any evidence that president obama escaped denver without at least some damage. the only question being how severe and how long-lasting. that seems hard to dispute. just as it's hard to dispute that prior to the debate, mr. romney was getting hammered in the polls. keeping them honest though, disputing or downplaying the obvious, that's what campaigns do on both sides. >> it's not going to be about the polls. >> i wouldn't put a lot of weight in any of these national polls for the next cuouple days. >> in terms of mitt romney surging, just remember how much of a deficit he had to make up. he was in some cases double digits behind the president in all those attributes. >> pull back the reins. >> the media is focusing on
partisan lines. >> they definitely do. in many ways i agree with your assessment. the thing that both romney and joe biden did was that they controlled the tone and tenor of the conversation. >> right. >> that both were able to decide what the conversation would be about and when they would assert it. >> as a director of debate isn't that what you teach your students to do. absolutely. that's what i am interested in. i am interested in my students understanding that you have to connect with the audience and a major component of connecting with the audience is figuring out what they want and telling them here's what i have to offer. >> so the interruption part that everyone is talking about, isn't it part of it, too, if the moderator is not stopping, it's up to the moderator to facilitate it, right? not to sort of facilitate it, but isn't part of it throwing your opponent off? >> i think it is part of throwing your opponent off and it is a tactic that joe biden can use and it may not have been one afforded to paul ryan in this instance. that if paul ryan interrupted 80 times he would h
